The Mafia Cop Conspiracy presents a series of podcasts from both respected researchers, forensic analysts as well as from the Eppolito family presenting the facts of this miscarriage of justice as well as substantiated information about the FBI and Department of Justice coverup that is so dangerous.

Hello, welcome to the Mafia Cop Conspiracy Podcast, episode seven. My name is Dan Gordon, and I’m a screenwriter by trade. I’ve done movies such as The Hurricane starring Denzel Washington, Wyatt Earp starring Kevin Costner, and the newly-released Rambo V: Last Blood, starring Sylvester Stallone.

But nothing I had ever written nor researched in a career spanning four decades—with over twenty feature-length movies and literally hundreds of hours of television credits—could have prepared me for the labyrinth of lies, cover-ups and national tragedies which I believe were all a part of what we’ve chosen to call the Mafia Cop Conspiracy.

In the last episode, I described how around 1995 a perfect storm was growing which I believe threw the Justice Department and the FBI into panic mode.


 In 2006, Dan Gordon, an award-winning screenwriter and producer, was writing the screenplay to a Universal Pictures proposed film based on Lou Eppolito's book, Mafia Cop: The Story Of An Honest Cop Whose Family Was the Mob. When he read in the papers that Louis Eppolito and his partner, Stephen Caracappa, far from being heroes, had been arrested for supposedly selling secrets and becoming hit men for the mob, he asked Universal Studios if he could cover the RICO trial of two NYPD Detectives, Louis Eppolito, and Stephen Caracappa as research and they heartily agreed. During the trial, it became clear that Eppolito did not believe his defense attorneys were acting in his best interests.

The news media dubbed the two NYPD Detectives the "Mafia Cops" and it was a sensational trial that on the surface looked like Eppolito and Caracappa not only took bribes to deliver information to the Lucchese Crime Family but also acted as hitmen for the mob.

The trial hinged on the testimony of a small-time criminal, Burton Kaplan who said he was a go-between ferrying information and payoffs between the two detectives and Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso.


At the end of the Mafia Cops trial, two events had simultaneously occurred:

  1. R. Lindley DeVecchio, lead agent for the FBI Colombo Family Crime Squad was accused of assisting in four murders and of allegedly being an informant for Gregory Scarpa, Sr. of the Colombo Crime Family.
  2. The prosecution did a document dump where two letters from Anthony Casso were discovered in which he confessed to the killing of at least one of the mobsters pinned on The Mafia Cops, exonerated them of the rest, and alleged that his crime family informant was a lead agent for the FBI.


On the last day of the trial just before the prosecution was called to sum up their case, Judge Weinstein ordered that Casso be called to speak about the details of his letters. This occurred on March 30, 2006, The transcript of this telephone conversation is attached below.


One year before beginning his research on The Mafia Cops, Dan Gordon was commissioned to write a short series about the Oklahoma City bombing. He was able to interview Terry McNichols' defense attorney at length and was told that there were some unusual circumstances beyond two White Supremasists seeking revenge for the events in Ruby Ridge and Waco.
